Dental bridges, also known as fixed dentures, are a common way of bridging the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A typical bridge is made from two crowns (one on either side of the gap) and a false tooth/teeth in between. Bridges are attached to surrounding natural teeth or dental implants for support.

How long do dental bridges last?
A dental bridge’s success depends on the foundation. This is why it’s vital to keep your remaining teeth strong and healthy. On the average, dental bridges can last 5 to 7 years. With good oral hygiene and regular professional cleaning, a fixed bridge can even last for over a decade.
